The Hermantown Police Department took to their Facebook page to let everyone know that the intersection at Maple Grove Road and Midway Road is scheduled to be re-opened on Friday, August 31 with the brand new roundabout in place.

They also provided the graphic below to help people navigate roundabouts.  I rarely encounter roundabouts and they can be daunting, especially when you're in an unfamiliar area.

This graphic actually simplified it for me and hopefully it will for you too, if you're not yet comfortable driving through them.  Basically, if you're going straight you can be in either lane.  If you need to turn left you need to be in the left lane and in you're turning right you must be in the right lane.

Just make sure you're aware of the yield signs and drive within the speed limit and you should make your way through all roundabouts just fine.
